MAKING YOUR OWN HALLOWEEN JEWELRY


 
Making your own Halloween jewelry can be fun and it's relatively easy to do. You can find all kinds of inexpensive kids bracelets, necklaces and Halloween miniature ornaments that you can take apart and turn into charm bracelets, earrings and necklaces, giving them your own flair.
 
We've picked up some kids charm bracelets with three charms and some decorative beads at a local grocery store for around $1.50 each. We'll use three bracelets to make a great looking necklace and earring set. We also picked up two sets of Halloween mini ornaments at a craft store that had nine in a pack for about $1.99. These can be turned into earrings, necklaces and charm bracelets.
 
Supplies Needed:
  • Halloween mini ornaments and charms
  • Jewelers Pliers
  • Jump Rings
  • Clasps
  • Plastic coated jewelry wire or stretch jewelry string
  • Earring wires
  • Autumn colored plastic or glass beads
  • Satin "Rattail" cord
  • Crimping beads

Necklace
Using the charms, beads and other Halloween items that you have found, lay them out on a bead form to see what it will look like. You can move them around and make it perfect before you string it. Use either plastic coated jewelry wire or stretch sting to string the beads. If using wire, you'll need some crimps and a fastener for the ends of the necklace.

Bracelet
Using needle nose pliers, dismantle the pre-made Halloween jewelry if you need to. Cut a piece of the rubber stretch string to fit your wrist. Using stretch string, string the beads and charms. When you have added what you want on it, tie off with a "surgeons knot" and add a small drop of craft glue made for this string to secure it. Make a bunch of them and wear them all at one time!

Earrings
Using hoop earrings made for adding beads or bead pins to make multiple hanging pieces, you can do just about anything when making earrings! You may need to buy a pack of ear wires to attach your beads and charms to, jump rings as well. You can look for spiders, pumpkins and ghosts with bells inside them that easily make a quick pair of earrings.
